This is the word of the LORD concerning Israel. The LORD, who stretches out the heavens,1 who lays the foundation of the earth,2 and who forms the spirit of man3 within him, declares:
"I am going to make Jerusalem a cup4 that sends all the surrounding peoples reeling.5 Judah6 will be besieged as well as Jerusalem.
On that day, when all the nations7 of the earth are gathered against her, I will make Jerusalem an immovable rock8 for all the nations. All who try to move it will injure9 themselves.
